AT&T Batteries "Hazardous Waste"

JS Online: AT&T replacing batteries: "'It's no small task. But on the other hand, AT&T can't take too long because there could be other incidents,' said industry consultant Kermit Ross, principal of Millennium Marketing in Frisco, Texas.

'It's going to be ugly. These batteries have to be handled as hazardous waste. They're supposed to be put back in their original packing material. . . you can't just drop them off at the local landfill.'

AT&T could have saved a lot of money if it had stopped using the Avestor batteries immediately after the Houston explosion in 2006, according to Ross."
